Riassunto analitico
The MSc Thesis deals with the analysis of inductance gradient parameters in a
multiple shot launcher named SR\3-60, property of the French-German Research
Institute of Saint-Louis (ISL), France. In order to reach a deeper knowledge in this
topic a circuital model has been developed, involving both the self-inductance of
a launcher and the mutual coupling between them; later, the equations found have
been implemented in a Simulink blocks model. What figured out from the analytical
study helped understanding the behavior of inductance parameters and designing a
static experiment to calculate them as functions of frequency and armature position
along the device. These data have been compared with analytical calculation using
the Partial Element Method (PEM) as well as with theoretical forecasts. Some studies
have been conducted also on dynamic shot experiments, focusing on the measurement
setup and on the inductance gradients as well, always with attention to the
metrological aspects.
Moreover, possibilities of further studies and improvements on the thesis line have
been highlighted.
